WSJ contest garners Light Point Security attention from investors

Cofounder Zuly Gonzalez told the Baltimore Business Journal that "investors from all over are reaching out to her."

It was Zuly Gonzalez, cofounder of small cybersecurity startup Light Point Security, who said at a Baltimore event in July that Maryland “lacks funding opportunities for really early-stage companies.”

But since having the startup she and Beau Adkins cofounded selected in the top five of the Wall Street Journal‘s Startup of the Year competition, Light Point’s fortunes appear to have changed.

As the Baltimore Business Journal writes:

Gonzalez said the attention from investors is a change for the small startup. Entrepreneurs are often the ones seeking out investors, going from pitch meeting to pitch meeting to make their case. But now, Gonzalez said investors from all over are reaching out to her.

Light Point Security produces web software that lets Internet users browse in the cloud, thereby reducing users’ risk of having their computers infected with malware. Gonzalez told the BBJ that Light Point isn’t raising money just yet, but will “look to do an angel investing round next year.”
